Originally manufactured by Ray-Ban, wayfarer sunglasses gained popularity in the 1950’s and 1960’s. But by the late 1960’s and 1970’s, the radical new shape of wayfarer’s masculine design suggesting an unstable dangerousness didn’t pair up with the flower power generation.
Though since the Summer of Love fading in popularity, Wayfarer sunglasses managed a lucrative comeback in 1982. The reason: a product placement $50,000-a-year deal to place Ray-Ban’s in movies and television shows – an advertising effort by the brand which continued throughout the 1990’s up until 2007, granting Ray Ban the fame and prestige within the sunglasses industry.
